My father was a veteran of the Korean War and had served his country during the Cold War. Here he is at one of his swearing-ins (my father is the one with his hand raised):
Here he is at another swearing-in with my mother (that's Sandra Day O'Connor, the first female member of SCOTUS, administering the oath of office):
My father's yahrtzeit, remembrance day, is coming up. On the American calendar it is August 15.
Suddenly, I miss him so much.
